Catholic school pre-school through high school 🙏🏼📿

Different public school every year from kindergarten to 9th. Then high school had 2nd worse reputation in entire Bay Area for drugs at that time. It was rough for a shy, goody goody girl trying to fit in.

Lol had too much fun in high school... all 6 years. But yes I graduated, did my remaining 12 credits in 4 months. With a month to spare before I would have been kicked out.

That explains a lot. Also helps nullify your opinion towards school and kids that age.

It was good. Toward the end things started slipping because we moved internationally and Mom got really busy so she couldn’t keep up with three kids in school. But I’m definitely glad I didn’t go to public school.

The public schools in my area aren't that great. A lot of my classmates now who came up in the local highschools struggle with rather basic concepts. So for that reason, I'm glad I was homeschooled too. However, there were definitely challenges to it.

Teachers are often leftist because they’re educated. Education is correlated with leftism.

IMO atoms, space, opinion
01/31/19 9:11 pm

I googled your query. Top five sites included:

1- The New York Post, right wing bias.
2-, featured articles on their home page include Natural Incidents of Time Travel (the author shares his own experience), Africans in Ancient America (“There goes the neighborhood!”), Dinos and Dragons (suggesting coexistence) & Nuclear Warfare in Ancient India (“Archaeologists uncovered ... nuclear ruins from pre-history”).
3-, “Can Your Students Recognize New Forms of Propaganda?”
4-, the article called out teachers as bigots undermining morals having no respect for science. HOME stands for “Heterosexual Organized for a Moral Environment.”
5-, who claims, “Education Is the State's Greatest Tool for Propaganda” which could be true but also claims they “saved the US from post-WWII socialism,” which may be a stretch.

I couldn’t find any examples of propaganda. Just a lot of accusations and some crazies. I don’t support the left or right. I support facts.

This isn’t an attack Shippy. I’m looking for evidence to support your claim. You didn’t provide any and I couldn’t find any. As a grandfather, I imagine you’re pretty far removed from the public school system. I have two kids currently in attending public schools and I haven’t experienced any leftist motives. It appears your claims are grounded in speculation and political bias.

I graduated high school a year ago and I can tell you I had plenty of conservative teachers and liberal teachers, who both refused to speak their political opinion in class because it’s illegal.

I sometimes talked politics with teachers after class and I had two math teachers with very polar opposite opinions, an extremely liberal history teacher but a very conservative government teacher. They all encouraged me to question everything and not just take what I see for granted.

But apparently I’ve been brainwashed by liberals..


02/01/19 8:35 am

My daughter’s current Honors ELA and Government teachers are very right wight Teumpers and, while it’s against school policy, went ahead and let the kids know. The work she has is obviously slanted in favor of, not Conservatism, but Trumpism. This has been ongoing throughout my children’s educations yet both are independently minded. Maybe you just raised followers?

SHIPPY1944 Tn.
02/01/19 8:54 am

Katy, nope all my whole family was & is encouraged to think for themselves, the net affect of that, is they are all Independent thinkers & voters, we do have one niece & husband who are genuine DemLeftists, which their families are Conservative on both sides, which means lots of times they leave the family gatherings early in a triggered offended huff, because somebody that loves them inadvertently said something they didn’t agree with or like❄️😡‼️

02/01/19 12:57 pm

That’s interesting, your whole family thinks indepently, but only two aren’t Conservative. How Independent of y’all.

Acow Where is the Source
02/01/19 2:33 pm

So I see we sidetracked from the main conversation, but I’d just like to drive this home.

If your kids think for themselves, what does it matter if what they are taught is left or right? Wouldn’t they be smart enough to develop their own opinion independent from what they’re taught?

There are some strengths or weaknesses but few exceptions in most cases, during my life time most of the people with character, honesty & integrity, who genuinely care for the welfare of others, & unselfishly serve the people, with no hidden agendas or ulterior motives, are now almost extinct. Over the past 60 years, I’ve seen a paradigm shift in which, those people are almost all gone, now no political party speaks or thinks of themselves as being public servants, or genuinely serving the people’s needs, only pandered to them, while not fulfilling most of what was promised. Wake up ! The system is working you,& no longer working for you, as the dis-United States continues its downward spiral, as that which once was spoken of as good, is now spoken of as evil & that which is evil is now spoken of as good, which is rotting soul & conscience of this Nation ! If it continues, it will either implode of its own excesses or explode into another U.S. Civil War !!!

The US isn't headed for civil war. We are a pretty united people when ridiculous rhetoric like that is pushed aside for rational conversation. Don't believe the hype Shippy and for goodness sakes stop watching Fox news. Turn of the TV and love your neighbor.
